Analytics will push Sears up higher than he might been drafted 10-15 years ago. He's a 5-foot-11, 178-pounder lefty with deception in his delivery who delivers an 87-90 mph fastball and a sharp slider in the upper 70s, and he also throws a changeup for strikes. The slider and changeup are average at best as pro pitches, but he pitches off his fastball, elevating and locating it well and showing the ability to pitch inside. The combination allowed Sears to lead the nation with 142 strikeouts, including 13.4 strikeouts per nine innings, third-best in Division I. He's proved durable in his college career as well.
